Hi namjiho the writer/s should have stuck to the original no. of episodes...   How can we expect Jang Nara & Choi Jin Hyuk to have happy ending in the drama? I had hope to see their love to prosper. Why shouldn't they keep it at 48EP?  There were extended dramas where it loses the steam & it became draggy. I hope that they didn't extend it.  CJH screen time was already not much considering being a lead in the drama ...sigh...  Even in EPs47-48 he didn't have much of a roll in. What kind of ending that the drama will have without the male lead?  Where is the ending gonna go there then....???? I somewhat lose interest anymore to continue watching..... but, I'm curious to see the ending, though.  Will this be a sad ending without him?  What's the point to extend the episode if the lead actor could not appear? It sounds as if it’s going to be an ending no one will enjoy. Awww man .... As I've mentioned above in my post that I was happy to watch this drama because CJH was in it. Did they not know his schedule before they decided to extend it? So, why even do the extended episodes if he’s not going to appear in them? I'm sad of this news..... I'm really disappointed.  Does that mean they’re killing him off? Ahhh.........no please ...  I wonder if ratings would decline or increase because of this new development:o^_^

 

@willenette my thoughts exactly.. I really think something isn't right with the drama extension.. I somehow lose interest in watching this ever since they reveal that Wang Shik has only 3 mos. to live.. I was like, WTH? I think they were really changing the plot direction because it seems the netizens are favoring the Emperor to end up with Sunny, because he acted cute and like a lovesick puppy in the recent episodes.. And I only scanned the scenes with CJH on Ep47-48, and yeah there was nothing much for him.. His character has no closure or whatsoever, so that's really bad!!! I've read someone ranting also if CJH was only a cameo.. And I was upset as her.. :tears::tears::tears: I think I won't be watching the last 4 episodes since the reason I'm watching the drama will not be around, I'll just read what damn reason they will come up with regarding his character.. 

sorry for my rant, I just feel so bad for CJH.. hope he won't be treated this way in the next project he will choose..

.Today I've finished my very first project for Viki Rakuten. At the beginning I was so nervous because it was my first time translating a kdrama and also I wasn't sure I can do this well, but at the end I'm pretty happy with my results.
.It was such a nice and pleasant experience.  Hope I'll have the chance to do it again.

7 Surprising And Crazy Scenes From “The Last Empress” Episodes 45-48

 

94d6e1ed5fee46bba91199945997df5e.jpeg?s=

 

This may have been the second to last week for “The Last Empress,” but the drama still had a few surprises up its sleeve — some more logical than others. Episodes 45-48 finally revealed the biggest secrets that “The Last Empress” had been withholding from us, but surrounding these mysteries were some more puzzling scenes and new developments. From the unexpected to the downright bizarre, here are seven moments when “The Last Empress” surprised us with some crazy scenes this week!

 

Warning: spoilers for Episodes 45-48 below.

Spoiler

1. Hyuk’s recovery

It’s not all that surprising that Hyuk (Shin Sung Rok) survived being pushed off a cliff by Na Wang Sik, but the rest of this scene was wonderfully wacky. From the ragtag group of citizens that discovers Hyuk washed up on shore to the Emperor’s first request upon waking up, this sequence was hilariously absurd — we thought we had seen it all, but we were wrong.

 

The-Last-Empress-45-e1550374679419.jpgShin-Sung-Rok1-e1550374699623.jpgShin-Sung-Rok-3-e1550374862963.jpg

2. The royal newcomer

“The Last Empress” gave us a surprise when it introduced a new character — a member of the royal family, no less — in its second to last week. Empress Eun (Jeon Soo Kyung) is a welcome addition to the drama because she brings some much-needed moral decency to the palace, but it nonetheless seems a bit strange for the drama to suddenly introduce a random estranged royal so close to the end. How did no one mention her before?

 

The-Last-Empress452-e1550375603856.jpgShin-Eun-Kyung2-e1550375658354.jpgJeon-Soo-Kyung-e1550375676380.jpgJeon-Soo-Kyung2-e1550375693946.jpg

3. Na Wang Sik’s new position

It’s also a little crazy that Na Wang Sik (Choi Jin Hyuk) has been appointed to lead the audit of the royal family. Don’t get me wrong, we love that he finally gets the chance to take legal action against the family that has so wronged him, but as a bodyguard by training, is he, you know, qualified to do this?

 

Choi-Jin-Hyuk1-e1550375823274.jpgChoi-Jin-Hyuk2-e1550375845993.jpg

4. The Empress Dowager’s wild past

In addition to Empress Eun, the drama also introduced another new character (Kim Soo Mi) this week, and to hilarious effect: the sole remaining property holder on the mysterious Chungeum Island is none other than the Empress Dowager’s (Shin Se Kyung) former staff member.

 

Kim-Soo-Mi-e1550379245977.jpgShin-Eun-Kyung452-e1550379266476.jpg

 

And she knows more about the Empress Dowager’s past as a party animal than the evil woman would care to admit… but we are more than glad to have gotten this hilarious flashback scene!

5. Yoon’s sudden recovery

Another surprise that the drama handled rather oddly was Yoon’s (Oh Seung Yoon) return to consciousness. After we last saw the Prince deep in a coma from which we were told he might never fully recover, it felt rather clunky of “The Last Empress” to suddenly show him in Hyuk’s chambers, not only awake but also perfectly fine. We’re glad Yoon has made a full recovery, but also, what?!

 

Shin-Sung-Rok46-e1550377068173.jpgOh-Seung-Yoon-Shin-Sung-Rok-e15503770922Oh-Seung-Yoon-e1550377114798.jpg

6. The secret of Chungeum Island

At long last, “The Last Empress” revealed the truth behind the mystery of what is on the Empress Dowager’s coveted Chungeum Island. And it is…

 

Jang-Nara-e1550376452797.jpg

 

A lot of poppies. Which probably means drugs. This is not unsurprising, given how corrupt the Empress Dowager is, but it is crazy nonetheless!

 

Lee-Elijah-Jang-Nara-e1550376476113.jpg

7. The secret behind the Grand Empress Dowager’s death

And finally, the other big reveal of the week was one that we had been waiting a long time for: the truth behind who murdered the Grand Empress Dowager (Park Won Sook). And the answer was something that none of us quite expected: sick with guilt for enabling Hyuk and the Empress Dowager to become so powerful and corrupt, the Grand Empress Dowager was killed by… herself?!

 

Park-Won-Sook-2-e1550391029526.jpgPark-Won-Sook-3-e1550391048346.jpg

 

This reveal was definitely shocking, and rather problematic: it seems a bit silly that the old woman would have ended her life without bothering to tell Sunny, who she had grown so fond of — and, in addition, that she would have killed herself knowing that in doing so she was leaving Sunny alone and friendless in the palace with all of her horrible relatives. Perhaps this would have seemed like a more noble sacrifice if the Grand Empress Dowager’s logic made more sense, but as it stands, it seems rather flawed:

 

Park-Won-Sook-4-e1550391081402.jpgPark-Won-Sook-5-e1550391118480.jpg

 

It is true that both Hyuk and the Empress Dowager had attempted to kill Grandmother that night. But in leaving evidence of both of their attempts on her life, in reality the Grand Empress Dowager made it impossible to determine who exactly was responsible, causing neither of them to be punished.

 

Park-Won-Sook-6-e1550391135937.jpgPark-Won-Sook-7-e1550391162876.jpg

 

Even if her death had led to the exposure of Hyuk and the Empress Dowager, it seems like a much more roundabout and risky way to do so than to simply uncover the truth behind Empress So Hyun’s death, which was what the Grand Empress Dowager had been set on doing before her family members tried to kill her. Grandmother’s suicide felt anticlimactic, but we still have one week left in “The Last Empress,” so it will be interesting to see how the drama wraps up its loose ends!

The schedule excuse, no appearance specifically on extension everything indicates a discord. I'm sad this happened in TLE. I hope CJH will take a rest pick a nice project because he seemed to be very busy in last half of 2018 with DJ and TLE. He seemed to be not a fan of action gener as he said so in interview. So most probably he will pick a rom(com) drama next. If I'm not too busy may be I can join in that thread too there too. 

 

This is my guess as well. Just dropping by to rant my displeasure of how things have turned out for CJH. I really don't buy the whole conflicting schedule rubbish.

@booha Honestly I started losing interest  in the drama when I see so little screen time for CJH , but I followed the thread anyway and watch the cuts on IG. I really hope he gets another project like Tunnel . Even DJ with its relatively weak storyline towards the end was so much better as we had him all the way with record number of kisses. I was not even complaining when watching Pride and Prejudice a long time ago when they drag so much unnecessary stuff leaving so little time for OTP romance. But this is too much. How does a drama not have it's main protagonists in its final episodes. ...ok rant over , just needed to get it off my chest :D 

 

Back reading and realised you guys were talking about P&P..my favourite scene...

Hi guys...newbie here. I just found myself liking an actor named Choi jin Hyuk. I know I'm late. Lol. But thanks to messy drama, the Last Empress. I was rooting Cheon Woo Bin since he's the srongest and very strategic character that ever exist in kdrama world before the writer destroyed it withstupid selfish character, Lee Hyuk. Until now I don't get why people shipping Sunny with the killer like Hyuk.

I'm so disappointed to TLE but wish the best for Jin Hyuk's next projects. He deserve the best. He also very sweet to the younger actors. And his chemistry with Nara is great like I wonder they have relationship like Aera and Dong Man in Fight My Way kkkkk.....

Anyway,I hope his next project is a hero in joeson period. I think this guy is suitable for that kinda role. But whatever the project, I will watch it for him.

@triplem, thanks. I didn't want to say it because Choi Jin Hyuk seemed to be trying to keep it low but ...I need to get it off my chest too!

 

Spoiler

How can there be a schedule conflict if the schedule is far away from the actual broadcast date..So we don't need to think very much to guess what happened behind the scene!

 

I think CJH did the right thing by not associating him with the extension episode. It was a wise choice. The character Na Wang Shik represents the many victims of Imperial Family's injustice. It's not just less screen time that is disturbing.The way the drama flipped it's story by focusing more on the villain and less on the actual victims is very much disturbing..The Last Empress was supposed to be a story of two victims fighting together against Imperial Injustice and bringing it down. But the drama seemed to be losing it's moral ground by giving pity cards to the bad guy. NWS deserves better..Even if he died, he should either get his revenge or an honest appology. 

CJH took the right decesion..I know it wasn't easy decision for an actor but it was so damn right one. :thumbsup:

 

It's interesting how CJH not appearing for last two episode is still SBS's top E news after one week..Though next episode is out. B)

This one is among my favourits too..:love: To tell you the truth all of their couple moments are my favourite..May be because they're short yet sweet..May be because we know Han Yeol Moo is losing precious time by staying away from Koo Dong Chi.

I just find them too cute together, their interaction, bickering and everything in between.. We don't usually get such cutsy romance in a legal drama. So their chemistry was refreshing to me.

Another favourite OTP moment of mine.. :wub:..The moment we know that she is very much (POSITIVELY) affected by him!

But yeah..I agree. I wish the OTP moments were longer..Specially the short ending.. CJH looked sooooo good! They should've given us the 10th date in the end because it got interrupted every time .. ;)

:heart:

Devilish Joy couple looked good together..The drama had those cheesy moments people can't help but fall for! It's interesting how many of CJH's leading ladies are short and the height differences are way too cute.;) 

Tunnle was too good..The story, the characters and the way they organized the story..:thumbsup:

same here  @PutriSalju ...though i've always liked CJH, this is my first time in this thread bcos i'm soooooooooo unhappy about the way TLE turned out & the way CJH (& his character NWS) is treated. Hope CJH knows that there are many of us supporting and rooting for him no matter what crap he went thru for that drama.

Hello hello  Thank you so much about the news.  It seems this KBS2 new drama changed its name, from ‘Inner Circle’ to ‘Justice’.   According KBS2 & SHJ’s agency & CJH’s agency, Son Hyun-joo and CJH are reviewing positively about this new drama.  So we have to wait awhile but I like the word ‘positively’.:)  
PS I will try to translate this article soon.

** I’m happy to see CJH will be back on the variety show on 2/28.  I’m happy to know he didn’t mope around too much.  Sometimes when things take a wrong direction, one remedy is to move on with another project and to stay focused on it.  Oops I know sometimes it’s easier to say it than to carry it out.  hehe  :P 
GTree said CJH already finished the recording for the variety show so now I guess he’s been busy preparing for Taiwan FM.   

 

CJH, a first special guest, meets Kang Ho-dongxYang Se-hyung  in a new theme of ‘We Will Channel You

8I3Ee1O.jpg?1

CJH will appear as the first special guest in a new look of ‘WWCY!’.

 

 According to OSEN(2/21),CJH participated by working with KHD and YSH in the recording of the new theme, ‘Becoming Stronger’ on SBS recently.

 

‘Becoming Stronger’ is the fitness talk show which is hosted by KHD and YSH, who are members of the gym ‘BS,’ with a visiting star.  In each episode, special guests appear and share their personal stories.  It is said that CJH as the first guest shared unique stories and abilities.

 

There is a great deal of anticipation about what kind of synergy KHD and YSH will create with CJH.

 

CJH played the role of NWS/CWB in the SBS drama ‘TLE’ with JNR and SSR.  Although he suffered a face injury during the pre-broadcast action shoot, he has fully performed his part as the driving force
in the ratings by leading each episode steadily.  However, due to Taiwan FM schedule issue, he didn’t appear on the extension broadcasting regretfully.
'WWCY!’, a new theme ‘BS’  will be broadcast on the 28th.

Hi booha, I hope CJH will take this revenge drama. “Justice” is based on a web novel of the same name about a man who embarks on a quest for revenge after losing his family. If Choi Jin Hyuk accepts, he would be taking on the role of lawyer Lee Tae Kyung, one of the best in the business with a talent for drawing not guilty rulings, or at minimum, probation, although he also has a reputation for fabricating witnesses. The drama is slated to air in July this year. In case, he takes this, he has been working non-stop..... but, I don't complain. :P

The deal is if she lets him put her name on a marriage certificate as his wife and Ye-Na's birth certificate as her mother, he will pay her 20 million won. She declines the offer and Man-Sik becomes devastated. Mi-Hee (Kim Ga-Eun) then appears.

I have no idea what kind of the drama it will be.  From the plot line, this drama sounds like some kind of a heavy revenge drama.  But when I read about PD and the writer,  it might be some lighthearted quirky drama?? 

Yeah he’s been working nonstop.  I feel like CJH is trying to catch up with much of his lost time.  I noticed that his acting is slowly maturing but he probably thinks his age is catching up to him so he wants to do as much work as he can before then.

booha, girl, donut must be your favorite, huh? hahaha - Just don't go overboard..... Too much of this isn't good for the health. And........after winter comes spring! Right now, it's still very cold in Korea. Winter usually lasts from December to mid-February/March. Korea 's winter has gradually shortened by up to 14 days over the last 30 years due to global warming . Thanks for sharing MORE about this upcoming drama. I hope we could get to hear news about his decision soon whether to take this or not. I couldn't agree with you - that he might be catching up with much of his lost time. :lol:

Until now I don't get why people shipping Sunny with the killer like Hyuk.

I'm so disappointed to TLE but wish the best for Jin Hyuk's next projects. He deserve the best. He also very sweet to the younger actors. And his chemistry with Nara is great like I wonder they have relationship like Aera and Dong Man in Fight My Way kkkkk.....

Anyway,I hope his next project is a hero in joeson period. I think this guy is suitable for that kinda role. But whatever the project, I will watch it for him. 

 

Hi Putri, OMG - it's been quite a long while since the last I saw you here around. I missed you in the other thread - hahaha - Like you, I'm also disappointed with the drama. The boring storyline towards the end were too much especially the ending. When the drama made a decision to extend for more episodes without CJH..... The dramatic ending wasn't all that satisfactory with all those pain & death. ^_^

Another late comer to this thread. Back in November I saw this article:

https://www.soompi.com/article/1262487wpp/choi-jin-hyuk-trains-royal-bodyguard-upcoming-drama-last-empress

So decided to check out the Last Empress, and am so glad I did, even if the ending went sideways and the NWS character didn't get real closure.

 

While waiting for new episodes of TLE, I've watched Pride and Prejudice, Emergency Couple, and Devilish Joy. I can't decide if Gu Family Book or the Tunnel is next.

 

Happy to see the CJH is considering his next project so we'll get to see him again soon.

I checked out the web novel ‘Justice’.  It has heavy angst with a mystery side.
The photo (web novel) of the lawyer is very eye catching.  Yeah the lawyer sold his soul to the devil but his conscience brings him back to salvation sort of … hum  So he is a baddie but he wears a fancy suit. Okay so far so good  hehe :P:lol:

This is my guess as well. Just dropping by to rant my displeasure of how things have turned out for CJH. I really don't buy the whole conflicting schedule rubbish.

@booha Honestly I started losing interest  in the drama when I see so little screen time for CJH , but I followed the thread anyway and watch the cuts on IG. I really hope he gets another project like Tunnel . Even DJ with its relatively weak storyline towards the end was so much better as we had him all the way with record number of kisses. I was not even complaining when watching Pride and Prejudice a long time ago when they drag so much unnecessary stuff leaving so little time for OTP romance. But this is too much. How does a drama not have it's main protagonists in its final episodes. ...ok rant over , just needed to get it off my chest :D 

 

Back reading and realised you guys were talking about P&P..my favourite scene...

 

haha no doubt TLE is a wacky drama.  I know the writer is well known in Korea  for her crazy makjang.   But she should have written the original synopsis as monarchy-animal-house, instead of putting down  the grandiose theme of battle between little people and powerful ones blah blah lol     Yes watching villains on the center stage endlessly repeating the same acts was a bit too much for me.    At least CJH was able to give me a memorable character WB.  It was so unexpected given CJH had limited screen time for WB.  

GMS & CWB What a contrast between two but I like both now.  haha
Thank you for posting the scene about ’10 seconds’.  The way they looked at each other was so….   Yeah Baek Jin-Hee is a good actress.   She really smashed in Juggler.  Let’s pray one of these days any of either CJH, BJH or Choi D will come up with another romcom like Juggler.

Hello and welcome   I forgot to mention my appreciation for your vigorously defending and explaining about WB and Sunny/WB in TLE.  Yes it was disappointing the writer wouldn’t be able to  handle the good and bad side fairly and skillfully.  
I know all those public broadcasters(KBS, SBS,MBC) are in a bad financial situation because of competition from cable stations which have drained out so much talent in writers and staffs and importantly profits.   So people weren’t surprised SBS aired TLE which did a number of provocative scenes early to draw in viewers and received a warning ticket from the broadcaster watchdog committee.   I’m sure these public broadcasters have to do something about before losing more market share.  But Korea is not a huge country. I don’t know whether there is room for both cable and public broadcasters.  However it should be a good time for actors, writers and staffs since there are lots of kdramas on air.

Welcome chingu   Yup you picked up the right one, CJH-CWB.  haha   I was shocked by how much he had changed himself from DJ GMS to CWB.   At the beginning of TLE, I was a bit hesitant about his new character as I was deeply into GMS and DJ’s OTP like many other of DJ’s fans.  Then I thought to myself TLE seemed to be about revenge and not much about romance so I didn’t have to feel I was deserting DJ’s OTP.  hehe Kdrama can make one’s mind like makjang thinking.  Who would think  drama characters are real. Lol   But it happened to my gullible brain.  hahha   However ever slowly I was moved by CJH’s WS/WB and I wanted to cheer up Sunny and WB. But the writer, like a wicked step mother, teased us with their love line  and dragged it on and then smashed their happy ending.
 Thankfully  all this news about CJH’s appearance in a variety show and possible new drama made me excited about his new course.  
CJH always tries to improve on his acting  and challenge himself with an interesting story and character.  So if he decides to pick this drama it will be interesting to watch.
